I don't see a need to upgrade from A700...yet

I just sent my A700 into Laredo for service and borrowed a friend's Canon 40D for emergencies temporarily. The 40D is nice and in some very rough comp's it is a bit better than the A700 IMHO. I am not caught up in Sony bashing but, do wish they'd put out a Canon 7d equivelant. None of the current Sony bodies really exite me enough to buy one. If the A900 had a faster burst rate...maybe. Then again, if I were to layout $2700.00 for the A900 TODAY I'd switch systems instead. Now I might be a bit close minded about things but, for the type of shooting I do the A700 suits me fine.
